Cascina Chicco – Roero Arneis Anterisio 2017 (88 tsomw points)
In the glass a bright yellow color.
On the nose intense aromas of nectarine, apple and pear with hints of almonds and camilla.
On the palate dry, medium-bodied and well balanced with nice freshness and acidity showing flavours of tropical fruits and a nice bitterness in the persistence finish.

Variety of vine: 100% Arneis
Vineyard position: Canale, Piedmont, Italy. Anterisio is a little zone of Canale with a very rich history. It’s named as one of the most important places for the cultivation of the Arneis.
Date of harvest: Middle of September
Wine-making: After evaluating the sugar and acidity levels to determine the optimal harvesting period, the harvested grapes rest for one night in a refrigerator cell at 0°-2° C. The pressing is done the day after. The maceration is done between skin and must, an interesting choice for a white wine, which gives the wine much fragrance, structure and longevity. Temperatures are kept cold in all the operations in order to maintain the color. The wine then rests only in stainless steel casks, and is bottled in March.
Dishes: This wine is recommended with hors d’oeuvre, rice, pasta and fish.
Recommended serving temperature: 12-13° C.
